OpenAIRE Task Forces

The task forces are a new programme in OpenAIRE Advance to enable capacity building, competencies and awareness raising on different relevant open science topics, involving all partners and NOADs, demonstrating a vertical approach for knowledge exchange. NOADs with more engaged activity levels are involved throughout and are also encouraged to facilitate these groups, aiming to strengthen understanding, steer project activities and, mobilise community ties.

In OpenAIRE Advance there are three task forces (at the bottom of the page you find useful resources (guidelines, blogs, checklists, etc):

  • Policies for Open Access and Open Science
  • Research Data Management
  • Legal Guidelines for Research Performing Organisations (RPOs)
Digital Curation 101

Digital Curation 101 employs the curation lifecycle model sections as a means of presenting content to students. The DC 101 has been developed because the DCC, in its role as a source of expert advice and guidance to the community, identified a need for a contextual, theoretical introduction to the basics of digital curation with practical examples and exercises. The target audience is new grant holders with Research Council curation mandates to fulfil. The course indicates what should be considered in planning and implementing projects.
